Morning- Thursday, September 17th, 10am-Noon
Place: Terri's House (we'll kick the boys out for awhile!)
Cost: $18 for 12 Cards / Envelopes

Fall is in the air! Join me for some fun cards using great new color combinations and techniques in a fun, no-stress environment! Whether you're just beginning to rubber stamp, or you consider yourself a pro, you're sure to learn something new this month. We'll be making 4 each of 3 different designs for a total of 12 cards. You'll learn new techniques like Faux Tearing with over embossing, Rolling Penny cards, Sweet Treats Cups, and a fun new way to 'watercolor' with just the stamps and ink! Bring your own adhesive and scissors, all other supplies (including regular envelopes) will be included. Optional: Padded envelopes to mail the Sweet Treats cards will be available at class for an additional $1 each - You'll only need these if you plan to actually mail your Sweet Treats Card. RSVP early, class size is limited.


And, while we're on the subject, some of you may be wondering WHY I do my classes this way? Why would I have you make 3 of each card? There are several reasons why it works, and I'll go into those in just a minute.
The reason I began doing 3 cards is this: While teaching a card class one day I had a student who was just in LOVE with one the cards she had finished. I asked her who she was going to send it to and she said "Oh I never send out the cards from your classes, I just save them for ideas". Several others around her agreed. Wow! That really struck a chord with me and made me kind of sad to think that all these cards were sitting in a box not making anyone happy. So, I decided to figure out a way that my students could have the best of both worlds; a card to keep and a couple to send. 3 was really the perfect number!
Along the way, I've really come to love this format for many reasons. Among them: It seems like products are packaged so that they're easily divisible by 3 and that makes prep work easy. And, the best thing? Students get to try a technique 3 times! That means they can really have a trial and error type of environment where they aren't stressed out because they know they have two more tries at it. I love that!!!
And back to this month's class:
Email me @ terri.meehan@att.net or call me @ 614-777-9288 to sign up for class. Class kits are available to those who can't attend for $23 (I do a lot of extra prep on these including putting one card together completely so you have a sample). For best availability, kits should be ordered prior to class.
Check back over the next few days, I'll be posting one of these cards each day so you can see what you'll be making! And, I'll be posting a contest next Sunday for some fun Blog Candy! (not really candy, but Stampin' Up! goodies :)
Hope to see or hear from you soon!
